CLEAN... ENERGY

Offshore wind farms from New Jersey to Virginia took a big step closer to reality with the completion of a review that showed the renewable energy source would not cause major environmental damage, officials said today. Wind projects off the coasts of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and New Jersey are being studied. The Mid-Atlantic lease proposal follows the Cape Wind project in Massachusetts that was given the go-ahead in 2010 after 9 years of federal review."No developer should have to wait nine or 10 years," for approval, Salazar said. The response from the developers was "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

TVA had to do something. They own some of the dirtiest coal Gen plants IN THE WORLD.

You righties will take that defense of oil to the grave ! Europe has embraced solar and wind and are making great strides toward energy independence ! That's just what your wealthy benefactors don't want to hear !

Well,now, we see the tva's wagon being hitched to a solar powered horse.Those Nashville cats must be on to something.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) board of directors held a meeting on Feb. 12 to discuss the addition of cleaner generating sources to TVA’s energy portfolio. The board moved to increase TVA’s natural gas-fired and renewable energy portfolio to include: - Quantum Utility Generation’s Choctaw combined cycle natural gas-fired power plant near Ackerman, Mississippi. TVA has been buying power from the 700-MW plant since 2008; and - A power purchase agreement with NextEra Energy (NYSE: NEE) for electricity from a planned 80-MW solar power farm in Lauderdale County, Alabama. The installation would be the largest facility in the Tennessee Valley region.

absolem - My understanding concerning the cost and efficiency of solar panels is that, with the present cost of coal-fired power plant electrical rates on a comparative basis to that produced by solar, by the time you have recouped both the price of the solar panels and their installation, it's time to replace them.

That's one of the primary reasons Obamanite "Greenies" want to drive up conventional electric rates, to artificially make solar APPEAR to be economical.

No the Koch brothers want keystone !Ask the native americans if they want to cede a part of their nation to let a pipeline through !

Beright...earlier, before i was distracted, i looked into the cost of a solar farm. from what i have gathered it appears that it costs about $500,000 per acre to construct. it takes about 5 acres of suitable land to produce 1 megawatt/hour under ideal conditions. since i have to reload on my wheaties i will leave any further calculations for others to share, which may give further insight into what the potential scope could be for practical use.

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child.

That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

 23 (Reuters) - Residents of a Montana town whose water supply was tainted by an oil pipeline rupture last week got the all-clear on Friday to turn taps back on, though some reported brown or black material spurting from faucets even after their pipes were flushed.

Yep, those shut off valves are 100% effective eh...

Maybe you're right to be against the pipeline, ohwiseone, since you THINK you're right about everything. The Canadian tar sands oils ARE presently being moved by railcar. OH, THAT'S SO MUCH SAFER THAN A PIPELINE WITH INTERMEDIATE, COMPUTER-CONTROLLED SHUT OFF VALVES AND PUMPS! Let's just continue to move it the old-fashioned way so we can have more of this.

Theres still the question . Why make a pipeline that goes across our country when it would be a shorter route to Lake Superior and use tankers just like they do with Alaskan oil ?
